Starting from the Insight subscription tier, users can access our API data.

What kind of data you can get through API

You can work with any metrics from monitoring topics, such as the number of mentions, breakdown by sentiment, or word cloud.

Documentation: https://youscan.docs.apiary.io/

☝️ You cannot access mentions through API.

Can I limit access to certain topics?

Yes, the API keys are attached to specific users. The API will only contain the topics accessible to that user within the YouScan interface.

You can check which users have an API key in the Account Settings under Users.

💡 We recommend setting up a test user to be flexible with your topic access.

How to get an API key

  1. Navigate to the YouScan account of the user who needs the API key.
  2. Go to "My Settings."
  3. Click "Create" in the API key section.

☝️ Remember to copy your key right away, since you cannot view it twice.

How to renew/re-create the API key

  1. Navigate to the YouScan account of the user who needs to re-create the API key.
  2. Go to "My Settings."
  3. Click "Re-create" in the API key section.

Happy monitoring! :)
